We here at DrupalCon Portland are very excited to announce our final keynote speaker, Michael Lopp!
Michael Lopp is a Silicon Valley-based engineering leader who builds both people (who doesn't want to do this?!) and software at companies such as Borland, Netscape, Apple, and Palantir Technologies. While he's not worrying about staying relevant, he writes about pens, bridges, people, poker, and werewolves at the popular weblog, Rands in Repose. All common topics. Really.
Michael has written two books; "Being Geek" and "Managing Humans, 2nd Edition". "Being Geek" is a career handbook for geeks and nerds alike. His first book "Managing Humans, 2nd Edition" is a popular guide to the art of engineering leadership and clearly explains that while you might be rewarded for what you build, you will only be successful because of your people.
Michael surfs, plays hockey, and drinks red wine in the redwoods of Northern California whenever he can because staying sane is more important than staying busy. We're partial to the red wine, but to each his own.
Make sure you register today to get in on the Michael Lopp keynote action!
